Weekly Report

Woops. Missed a report last week...

Last week I wrote the radio driver which is able to send and receive 802.15.4 data packets. The Contiki software was useful to see which registers I needed to initialise to get data moving. There's plenty left to do but it's enough to get running.

This week I have started writing the MAC layer. I want to start with the PAN coordinator, specifically with beaconing. Once I have beacons, I can start work on the three scan types - active, passive and energy detection. This will allow the PAN coordinator to survey the site before starting a network.

Once I have the surveys and beacons working, I can get association working.
